Having a ton of fun playing as a Ranger in Divinity: Original Sin. The regular shooting and positioning feels great, but there's also a great deal of variety in terms of special arrows e.g. explosive, poison, static cloud, knockdown etc. Oddly enough, I was also thinking back to Arrow today while I was playing.

Good points made above. In reference to Dragon Age in particular, I believe you can do an Auto-Level up without committing to it. It usually builds the characters to excel in one of the roles mentioned above, so you can get a sense of what classes need what. However, just cancel the level up process if you want and go back and spend the points the way you see fit.
I'm getting it a bit with Dragon Age: Inquisition and I'm having a hard time putting my finger on it. I think it made a smart choice of sectioning off the world into smaller "open worlds". I dig some side stuff like the astariums and forts, but stuff like the shards and mosaic pieces I've started to completely ignore. It's a shame, I wish they would've done a little more with the paper treasure maps (like Red Dead Redemption). They aren't really a marked side quest. I'm closing in on finishing the main story, with Far Cry 4 waiting for me. I'm not sure I should follow up with that if I'm feeling the fatigue. I think for me it's really coming down to quality side content over quantity. This is why I'm glad I skipped Assassin's Creed: Unity. Making an Assassin's Creed game with discreet levels or a semi-open world would get me more jazzed about that series than any change of setting/time-period would. I think Jeff suggested as much in a recent Bombcast.
Agreed. Finished this quest last night and was pumped afterwards. The game really opens up after that. As mentioned by many others, the areas after the Hinterlands are much more interesting.
Have been trying it with my wife in Canada. Promo codes don't work here and you don't get to choose the snacks (they just give you a different set each month). It's a little too expensive for snacks. May reconsider renewing once they get out of the beta for Canada and start letting me choose. Best thing I had was beer battered cheddar pretzel bites. They actually might be the best snack I've ever had. Black and white granola was also very tasty.
Just had the left stick on my first controller start to wear a couple days ago. It seems to be a prevalent problem. The guy at EB Games said they continue to sell out of the stick covers regularly. I ordered a 2 set of Grip-Its for my two controllers, which have been reviewed well.
Well written Patrick. I agree with your ideas here. This game's story-telling felt like a big step back for Ubisoft. Although, I am kind of happy the it stayed small and didn't get into saving the world. From what I glean in the credits, that won't be the case in the next game.
